Feel free to come to three meeting as a guest before deciding to join. WHAT IS THE NATIONAL ADVISOR NETWORK? The National Advisor Network is a professional group of experienced and highly knowledgeable Intuit Advisors (i.e. QuickBooks ProAdvisors and Intuit Solution Providers). WHY CREATE A PROFESSIONAL NETWORK OF INTUIT ADVISORS? Advisors Benefit by Supplementing the QuickBooks ProAdvisor Program with Additional Tools, Resources and Networking Opportunities. We designed this network as a complement to the ProAdvisor and Intuit Solution Provider programs - in that we provide some very specific additional benefits like a file transfer system for sharing QuickBooks files (or any type of file) with your clients, a custom-designed email group & online resource database, a members'-only monthly web conference and much more. The Most Experienced Advisors Need to Work Together. The most knowledgeable, most proactive and most experienced Intuit Advisors need a dedicated and exclusive space to * Share ideas * Cross-refer QuickBooks-related products and specialized services * Exchange technical information, tips and tricks As a result, the pre-requisites for joining our program are higher than any other national, independent network of QuickBooks consultants. There is Strength in Numbers. By banding together a large group of like-minded and highly experienced consultants, we will have a collective "voice" within the accounting technology industry, with Intuit, within the QuickBooks user community, with developers of Intuit Developer Network applications, etc. Also, by working with developers to secure bulk rates we can provide tools, systems, resources and services to our members at a fraction of the price you would pay if you purchased similar services or products on your own. Networking is the Model for the 21st Century. As an Intuit Advisor with over 10 years of consulting experience Joe Woodard knows full well the benefit of networking with other professionals and the impact that doing so has had on the development and overall success of his consulting practice. Joe Woodard created the National Advisor Network because he wants to extend this benefit to others and employ the networking principles he has learned over the last decade on a national scale.
